Locks all broken, you can go inside. Lookout appears to be on the downward side of its life.
Did this as a roadwalk from the gate about 1000' below the summit which was locked. Got icy stares from hunters walking the road who were probably not thrilled about me being where they were. They turned back and I bagged my lookout.
I joined Klenke and Redwic for a peakbagging frenzy over Memorial Day weekend. 3 of the peaks were lookout locations.
This was my final outdoor destination during a six lookout and three non-lookout peaks within a 44-hour span. Great views from the summit. A couple of the upper wooden planks of the lookout structure looked weak, and I saw several carpenter ants on the outside planks while climbing the staircase. It is recommended to see this lookout while it is still there.
